Intel Announces $1.5M in Funding for Under-Represented Groups Pursuing Advanced Degrees in Computational and Data Science

During the HPC Matters Plenary at SC15 this year, Intel’s Diane Bryant announced the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowships, a commitment of $300,000 each year for five years from Intel to enable women and under-represented groups to pursue graduate degrees in computational and data science. The fellowships will be administered through SIGHPC and available to students attending a recognized graduate program in the targeted disciplines anywhere in the world. Although details are still being finalized, our shared goal is to announce the first fellowship winners next year during SC16.

Watch Bryant make the announcement in this video from SC15, beginning around the 27:30 mark.

SIGHPC Now a Sponsor of PASC Conference 

In addition to SC, SIGHPC now co-sponsors a second conference which takes place each June in Switzerland: Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) Conference.  Now in its fourth year, PASC draws scientists and practitioners to discuss key issues in using HPC for scientific applications. More info will be posted soon.
